This weekend we all bear witness to the amazing idea of an active king in the middle game. Taken from the game examples: 1991 Short-Timman, and 1973 Bronstein-Petrovich, we see two exceptionally creative and extremely sharp struggles where the active king was actually the deciding advantage, rather than the "Achilles Heel" of the position. Enjoy!
